What is V8RRS?
Announcing the V8 Road Racing Series!
Continuing in 2016 there’s a program for those that want to compete using big American V8’s in road racing events. This program builds upon the very successful V8 Stock Car series that targeted specific events to provide enhanced competition in the Big Bore classes, but V8RRS expands the concept even further.
To encourage participation by a maximum number of drivers, series events will be held at major tracks covering the eastern half of the country and most participants are within an 8-hour drive of at least three locations. While running as many weekends as possible certainly improves one’s chance of doing well, it is entirely possible to contend for a championship by racing three weekends plus the season-ending Championship Event held at a relatively central location.
V8RRS – Where America’s V8 Road Racers Come to Play!
The program details:
Seven eligible classes – AS, GT1, GT2, GTA, GTSC, SPO, T1
GTSC is a series-defined class for high hp stock cars while all other classes are per SCCA’s current General Competition Rules (GCR).
Points will be awarded to series registrants in each class as follows:
In addition, each driver receives a bonus point for every competitor s/he finishes ahead of up to a maximum of ten (10) bonus points.
All weekends will be double race events.
Series members will count their best five (5) race points finishes during the 24-race season, then add the results from both races in the season-ending event at VIR.
The series will collect a separate V8RRS event fee of $100 that’s in addition to the weekend entry fee collected by the host organization.
There is also the option of a season series registration fee of $150 that entitles each member to the following:
A $50 discount on each V8RRS event fee
Merchandise discounts from series sponsors
Each V8RRS event fee includes:
Identifying decals & patches
Eligibility for earning series points
Individual race awards
Season-ending class awards & prizes
As possible, at-track paddock coordination & socials
Eligibility for a chance in the $100 Early-Bird Entry drawing
Other benefits as the series grows
ALL monies collected in excess of series expenses will be returned to the racers via season-ending awards!
